151630 - UTAS GP Placement Supervisor Development

  • : Online

GP Supervisors will be familiar with the expectations of the UTAS Year 5 medical student placement and have reflected on their work as a GP Supervisor

Relevance to General Practice

Clinicians who teach are essential for the health workforce, and benefit from CPD to improve their educational skills. It is important that GPs who teach have skills in teaching and supervision in addition to clinical expertise, both for quality education of future doctors, and for patient safety as they interact with students in practice settings. 

The University of Tasmania utilises many General Practices in the delivery of its clinical teaching to medical students. Supervising GPs receive documentation regarding supervision requirements, but may not always review this in full. Feedback is provided in the form of student evaluation comments to practices. There is evidence to suggest that self-assessment is a useful tool to stimulate improvement of clinical teaching when combined with feedback based on student ratings. 

This activity provides targeted information to GP Supervisors as well as allowing reflection on a combination of self-assessment and student feedback.
